Laptop choice / buying advice.

Found 10th Oct 2017
Hi all!

I'm looking for a smallish laptop with a decent battery
life, full HD screen and ideally a SSD although not a dealbreaker as I
have a spare one. (budget around £500 but can be flexible)

currently looking at the Lenovo 13 which I can currently buy the
following spec for about £467. (through Health Service Discounts).

  • Processor : Intel Core i3-7100U Processor (3MB Cache, 2.4GHz)
  • Display Panel : 13.3" FHD (1920 x 1080) IPS Anti-Glare, 250 nits, Black
  • Memory : 8GB DDR4-2133 SODIMM
  • Graphics : Intel HD Graphics 620
  • Battery : 3cell 42Wh
  • Hard Drive : Intel 180GB Solid State Drive, 2.5", SATA3, OPAL2.0

hitting the buy button I was wondering if this is as good as I'll get
for my cash or should I be looking at something else?

Another thing I'm wondering is whether to upgrade to an Intel Core i5-7200U Processor (3MB Cache, up to 3.1Ghz) which would cost around an extra £50.

I see much difference in performance given the nature of the machine
and how would the more powerful processor affect battery life??

Cheers for any advice!
